    ASUS, the world's leading producer and innovator of motherboards, today shed brilliant light on the dark art of overclocking with the introduction of the ROG (Republic of Gamers) OC Station. The OC Station is a pure hardware-based, bay-mounted device with a large 3-inch display that takes OCing to a whole new level of ease, accuracy and sophistication. When used in conjunction with ROG motherboards, the strikingly-designed OC Station grants users on-the-fly access to overclocking parameters, ROG-exclusive features, fan speeds, system information and even a photo slideshow function.

    The Holy Grail of Overclocking: Instant Hardware-based OCing
    With the OC Station, ASUS has stamped its authority on an area that has proven elusive to other PC component manufacturers—pure hardware-based overclocking. The OC Station provides users with quick access to system voltages and frequencies without having to enter the BIOS. Users can overclock their systems on-the-fly via a knob, even during busy benchmark runs or actual gameplay. The OC Station also interfaces seamlessly with the embedded iROG controller on ROG motherboards, enabling users to manage ROG-exclusive features such as CPU Level Up and ASUS EPU-6 Engine at a hardware level. This allows users to achieve performance boosts and perform energy consumption tweaks instantly.

    Clearly Intuitive: Large LCD, Adjustable Faceplate and User-friendly Interface
    The OC Station's large 3-inch display makes reviewing the system's settings a breeze. Characters are bright and large, making them easily readable from a good distance, and an adjustable faceplate which can be tilted upward 30 degrees ensures perfect viewability while sitting down or standing. Similarly, the OC Station's user-friendly interface—consisting of a large knob and clearly-labeled buttons—makes navigating through its comprehensive functions an effortless affair.

    Dynamically Designed: Space-age Aesthetics
    Bold and futuristic, the OC Station's sports car-inspired design is a reflection of its value proposition: control, speed, precision and power. It is easily the most stylish OC controller on the market, a gleaming testament of ASUS' belief that cutting-edge function should come in a cutting-edge form. The OC Station can be installed in virtually any PC case, where it occupies two 5.25-inch drive bays.

    Key Features at a Glance
    • Pure hardware-based OC control
    • Real-time access to system voltages, frequencies and fan speeds
    • Intuitive user interface with 3" TFT-LCD display
    • Temperature monitoring for critical components
    • Alarm thresholds with audio alerts
    • Stylish design with adjustable faceplate (tilts upward 30 degrees)
    • Mounts in two 5.25-inch bays
    • Seamless integration with ROG CPU Level Up and ASUS EPU-6 Engine
    • Photo slideshow function

    Tee Hee :laugh:



    This is pretty cool. The tilt on it is a good idea, with my case sitting on the floor under the desk any screen on the front is pretty much unreadable from where I sit (right next/above it), so I'm glad they thought of that.

    I do wonder how much it'll cost though. And there is no word there about the resolution of the 3" screen - not that it really matters that much.

    That is very sweet.

    Mine however, is not real. When I ran the test it stalled halfway through for about ten seconds, then sputtered back to life and gave me that result. Every other test I've done is consistently ~14.5mbps, which is consistent with the 16mbps ADSL I pay for.

    I assume you're on fibre-optic in Sofia?

    WOW u mean u DONT get the sudden urge to look at your pornos while u are mapping a route to a picnic? Dont u wanna see pictures of your Nana when u look at your watch for the time, cause shes dead and she reminds you of time. Remember when uncle ted flew from Newark to your first overclocking recital?!?!?! Why not view these memories with a single touch? Side show has so many uses and its an LCD screen so... why not? When u are overclocking your system 955 to 5.3GHZ and it starts to smell like hotdogs cause u forgot the thermal paste, YOU CAN VIEW ACUAL PICTURES OF HOT DOGS before u ruin your system, what a way to go out, think about that... thats powerful dude.
